It’s on March 31st! It’s not only a day for backing up your personal data, but it’s also a day to talk about the enormous task of preserving our increasingly digital heritage and cultural works for future generations.
We’re aiming to reach those who have never backed up in their life, and might not even know what backup is!
However, we also like to say that World Backup Day is every day! A good backup plan will be continuous and include multiple layers to not only recover your data but also include steps for data preservation.
The original idea for the March 31st date was a humorous reference to April Fool’s Day on April 1st.
Sure! Check out our World Backup Day posters and flyers from our Downloads page. You can print these out and place them in your school or workplace as long you don’t modify the documents (okay, drawing cute kittens on them is alright). Just be sure to tweet us pictures at @WorldBackupDay or post them on Facebook.
No problem. Please email us with any questions or comments and we’ll work to help you out. Also, check out our Press Room for more info.

We’re pretty proud of World Backup Day, so we try our best to protect it from being used by spammers and scammers. If you see it being used inappropriately, let us know!
That’s not a question.
Whoa, whoa! Back up, man.
